London - Charles Manson is believed to have wed his young girlfriend Afton Elaine Burton.

The 26-year-old was spotted leaving her home wearing a wedding ring. Manson, 80, the mass murderer serving a life sentence in jail since 1971, received a marriage licence last month.

The pair met when Miss Burton wrote to Manson as a teenager and later moved to Corcoran, California, to be nearer to him.

Manson’s sentence bans him from receiving conjugal visits.

Manson and disciples of his doomsday cult carried out a series of murders in 1969. One of their victims was director Roman Polanski’s pregnant wife, the actress Sharon Tate.
